Black Velvet

Hello beauties!!!!

It is a snowy day here in the Northeast, I am laying in bed watching my favorite shows and munching on some of my favorite snacks. I thought I would come by and share with you my outfit this past weekend to church. A couple of weeks ago I found this beautiful black velvet skirt at my Local thrift store ($4.99) and I fell in love. To be honest  I don’t really have a particular style, if it looks good on me I like it. I paired it with a simple ribbed top and these sock boots that I have been dying to wear.

The Juvia’s Place Saharan Palette

Hello beauties!!!!

I am back with another product review. I am sorry I have been MIA, but with school and work it’s been quite difficult to really have some time to focus on the blog. I am back on track now, so expect more activities on here. Thank you for all those still sticking with me, you are greatly appreciated.

A few months ago my friend Paula ( who has a blog here) celebrated her birthday and since she’s into makeup I wanted to get her something beauty related. I wanted to get her a palette that was unique and different. I have heard of Juvia’s place before but never really paid much attention to them. So during my search for the prefect gift, I stumbled upon their website and fell in love with the colors from the Nubian II Palette and also the African theme behind their whole line. I got her the palette and decided to get the same one for myself, BUT they then came out with the Saharan palette which I HAD to get.



Look how beautiful this palette is!!!!! The packaging itself is absolutely beautiful, and I really love and appreciate the African meaning behind this palette.  I mean the colors are not only beautiful but so blend-able and creamy. I don’t know what formula they use to achieve the pigmentation, but this palette is absolutely worth the hype.

I HIGHLY recommend this palette to be part of your collection. This is now the most pigmented palette that I own.  And guys the price is unbeatable. This palette is only $28 on the Juvia’s website which is a great price compared to my ABH palette which retails for $42, and my Tarte palette which retails for$45.

If you guys have any other Juvia palette or this one, please comment down below and let me know how you like them.
